I have an affinity for planning. It’s a hobby of mine. I like planning vacations, weekends, dates, meals—practically anything and everything that can be planned. Before planning the Sedona St. Patty’s Day parade, I did not realize how rewarding I find planning events too. After this realization, I set a goal to become a community event planner. It is now my senior year and I am required to work at an internship to complete my major. Peak Events offers the perfect internship for my goal; planning a festival, especially one as large as the Blues and Brews Festival, is going to provide me with essential hands-on experience. Further, working for Peak Events offers me more experience, guidance, and information on the fundamental and accessory details of event planning. My name is Rachel Mahkovec and I am excited to start working with Peak Events.
